Foundation stone laid for the Holland Park Youth Hostel 1958.

The mayor and local press watch as the foundation stone is placed during the construction of the youth hostal in Holland Park House in 1958.

Sadly the YHA was threatened with closure earlier this year after 56 years of service but seems to still be running.
